Thank you all for the replies. Really appreciate it.
skitt, good to know that Carafate is available in Canada. My thing is, my GI only saw inflammation in my stomach...no ulcers or issues in my espophagus. So he's not going to prescribe it if I ask. In fact, he wasn't keen on prescribing the PPI (tecta), but said I would if I wanted to try it (at the time we were going to NY for the weekend and so I wanted something that would help...rather than waiting to see if it would get better in time). My GI mostly left me and just gave me a prescription for nausea (which only helps if the nausea is mild). Guess I was hoping to find it over the counter and give it a try.
Pat Fill, I do believe we get Pevaid here. We also have zantac, and maybe a couple others (and we have Tagamet from US trips).
Alcie, 20 years? Yikes...it's been about 4 weeks for me, but have read and heard of issues when stopping the PPI.
Just want to feel normal again and not have to worry about nausea every time I eat...without having to take meds.
Ulcerative Colitis 1988, had colon removed and now jpouch
Now sufer from sacroiliitis and inflammation of piriformis muscle causing sciatica like pain during flare ups. Joints very bad...take celebrex when needed.
Also suffer from asthma (only triggered when I get a cold) and stuffed sinuses.
